In SQL Server, permissions to select (read) and write to database tables and stored procedures is granted by role. Databases typically have multiple roles to support users with different sets of access permissions. To access an MPF database, the calling user must satisfy two conditions:

Groups are assigned to roles using SQL Server Enterprise Manager. The following table lists the default MPF database roles, the databases with which they are associated, and the groups assigned to the role. Using Enterprise Manager, however, you can change the roles for a database as well as the members and permissions for a role.

To successfully execute the Custom Audit::Audit procedure against MPFAudit, MPFServiceRole must have write permissions for any tables and stored procedures updated by the SQL commands.
